    P D Gingerich
    Museum of Paleontology and Department of Anthropology, The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor 48109 1079, USA
    J Theor Biol 204:201-21. 2000
    ..In practical terms, arithmetic measurements must be transformed using logarithms to represent both the geometric normality of biological variation and the relative functional significance of measurements appropriately...

    P D Gingerich
    Department of Geological Sciences and Museum of Paleontology, The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48109 1079, USA
    Science 293:2239-42. 2001
    ..The new skeletons are important in augmenting the diversity of early Protocetidae, clarifying that Cetacea evolved from early Artiodactyla rather than Mesonychia and showing how early protocetids swam...
  3. ncbi request reprint Environment and evolution through the Paleocene-Eocene thermal maximum
    Philip D Gingerich
    Museum of Paleontology and Department of Geological Sciences, The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48109 1079, USA
    Trends Ecol Evol 21:246-53. 2006

    Philip D Gingerich
    Department of Geological Sciences, Museum of Paleontology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 4:e4366. 2009
    ..They are found in marine sedimentary rocks, but retain four legs and were not yet fully aquatic. Protocetids have been interpreted as amphibious, feeding in the sea but returning to land to rest...
  5. doi request reprint New Oligocene primate from Saudi Arabia and the divergence of apes and Old World monkeys
    Iyad S Zalmout
    Museum of Paleontology, University of Michigan, 1109 Geddes Avenue, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48109, USA
    Nature 466:360-4. 2010
    ..Saadanius has a tubular ectotympanic but lacks synapomorphies of either group of crown Catarrhini, and we infer that the hominoid-cercopithecoid split happened later, between 29-28 and 24 Myr ago...
